Nose
Wow. This nose has the attributes only old whisky... no, GOOD old whisky can give; blood orange, huge passion fruit, guava and tropical fruit juice. Peach and rich white grape juices too. Simply stunning.
Palate
Dusty old oak which is given vibrancy with the tropical fruit flavours which come from the nose. A hint of patchouli and black forest gateaux.
Finish
The blood orange again, some delicate nutmeg, strawberry and cherry.
Comment
Flavours like these are the reason wood maturation was invented. Excellent stuff.

Nose
Oaky with a sour note of cider apples. Damp warehouse. Reminds me of my granddad's cider cellar. Vetiver root. A touch of liquorice too. The sign of an old whisky. Opens up on complex notes of waxed furniture. A buttery note like apples cooked in butter for a Tarte Tatin.
Palate
Crisp, dry. Rich fruit cake. Beewax. Soft spices. Nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon. Hint of molasses.
Finish
Long, dry.
Comment
A rich, complex spicy whisky with perfectly integrated oak. To be savored slowly and preferably neat.
